• How much you can claim

    The ETR is 50% of eligible education expenses you incurred.

    For the period 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011, you can claim up to:

    • $794 for each eligible child in primary school - that is, a refund of $397
    • $1,588 for each eligible child in secondary school - that is, a refund of $794.

    How much you can claim depends on whether you have either:

    • full care of the child
    • you have shared care of the child
    • an agreed percentage.

    You have an agreed percentage if either of the following applies:

    • you split your FTB with your spouse
    • you are not eligible for FTB and you don't have a written agreement to state who will claim the ETR. In this case you will each have to claim half the ETR.
